After his amazing third-place finish at the first round of the EWS it was unclear if Innes Graham would be able to attend more races this season. But, thanks to support from local companies and brands Innes will be able to get between the tape at further EWS rounds including in Petzen-Jamnica this weekend.
Following his top finish in the Tweed Valley, the challenge for Innes was how he was going to get to the next round. With just a week before he would need to set off it has been a big effort to get him to Petzen-Jamnica in time for the race.
To help make this a reality Dirt School gave him the time off work and Tweed Valley Bikes assisted in efforts to get him out to Europe for the race. Innerleithen coffee shop, Café No.1, was one of the first to offer its support with a financial contribution for travel costs. Nukeproof's global distributor, Hotlines, also provided its support with the Nukeproof team being available at the races to assist Innes. Finally, Burgtec has stepped up and will be funding Innes to get to one of the European rounds in September.
Innes also received Wyn Master's Privateer Award
at the opening round of the EWS, this prize is designed to help out a top-performing privateer at each World Cup and select EWS races.
We can't wait to see Innes back between the tape this weekend and it is great to see a fast rider getting help to attend more races.
